Lyrics:

(LyricFind)

Rock, rock, rock, oh baby,

Rock, rock, rock, oh baby,

Rock, rock, rock, oh baby,

Rock, rock rock, oh baby

Rock ‘n roll is here to stay,

It will never die

It was meant to be that way,

Though I don’t know why

I don’t care what people say,

Rock ‘n roll is here to stay

(We don’t care what people say,

Rock ‘n roll is here to stay)

Rock ‘n roll will always be

Our ticket to the end

It’ll go down in history,

Just you watch, my friend

Rock ‘n roll will always be,

It’ll go down in history

(Rock ‘n roll will always be,

It’ll go down in history)

Everybody rock,

Everybody rock,

Everybody rock,

Everybody rock

Rock, roll, everybody rock

Everybody rock ‘n roll,

Everybody rock ‘n roll,

Everybody rock ‘n roll

Everybody rock ‘n roll,

Rock, roll, everybody rock ‘n roll

Rock ‘n roll is here to stay,

It will never die

It was meant to be that way,

Though I don’t know why

I don’t care what people say,

Rock ‘n roll is here to stay

Rock ‘n roll will always be

Our ticket to the end

It’ll go down in history,

Just you watch, my friend

Rock ‘n roll will always be,

It’ll go down in history

If you don’t like rock ‘n roll,

Think what you’ve been missin’

But if you like to bop and strawl,

Come on down and listen

Let’s all start to have a ball,

Everybody rock ‘n roll

Rock, rock, rock, oh baby,

Rock, rock, rock, oh baby,

Rock, rock, rock, oh baby,

Rock, rock, rock, oh baby

Rock, rock, rock, oh baby

Rock, rock, rock, oh baby
